5. Zombieland

“Best thing about Z land – no Facebook status updates.”

Zombieland is for anyone who loves zombies, an insane Woody Harrelson, and a classic boy-meets-girl, and together they kill masses of rabid un-dead, coming-of-age love story. In addition, as mentioned above, the film has one of the best cameos and ensuing death-scenes ever conceived.

The death scene is not only ideally suited to its recipient, Bill Murray, in that it is surprising, dry, quick and witty, but it completely pays off an earlier moment in the film. One of the things that bothered me in the first half of the movie, was that neither of the ruthless zombie killers, Columbus or Tallahassee, killed the allegedly zombie bitten Little Rock on the spot. The Bill Murray cameo, and kill scene, simultaneously pokes fun at the genre and makes up for the potential inconsistency in the Little Rock/ Wichita introduction scene.
